Pike is a dynamic programming language with a syntax similar to Java and
C. It is simple to learn, does not require long compilation passes and has
powerful built-in data types allowing simple and really fast data manipulation.
Pike is a reimplementation of the LPC language, its application domain spans
anything from the world of the Net to the world of multimedia applications, or
environments where your shell could use some spicy text processing or system
administration tools. Your imagination sets the limit, but Pike will probably
extend it far beyond what you previously considered within reach.
